While we wait for everyone to finish up and the last link parties to close, here are my slightly scattered thoughts on doing Challenge 2.0:
I think I'd like to do it again and there are two possible ways of going about it-
1. Do another 21 day challenge in 6 months. I'd have to take on a collaborator because it was a LOT of work for me and I think I'd go crazy if I did it all by myself again. I'd let weekends (or at least Sundays?) be off days, to be used as catch up or pajama days or whatever. I think we all could have used some breathing time.
2. Do a handful of 1 week challenges throughout the year. Just long enough to get you excited about your closet and all its possibilities again but not so long that you get burned out.
Twenty-one days felt really long to me but that could be because I was the one answering emails and tallying points and making sure people weren't submitting random links that had nothing to do with the prompt. It was slightly exhausting.
In the future I think I'll mix up more concrete prompts (eg. wear a belt!) with more abstract ideas to allow for a little more creativity (and difficulty, for those who want it). I've come up with a few that I'm already kind of excited about. I'll also probably recycle a few of my favorites from this challenge (the monochrome and copycat days were SO fun for me and pattern mixing seemed to really stretch a lot of people).
What are your thoughts? Did the length work for you or would you prefer a shorter challenge? What did you like or dislike? Do you have constructive criticism? What would you change or like to see for the next round?
